TRÁTH NA gCEIST

Tráth na gCeist Gael Linn aims to provide students of Irish in Northern Ireland the opportunity to hear the language being spoken outside the classroom at an informal and lighthearted event and to support the Irish teachers in their endeavours.

Events are organised at different venues throughout Northern Ireland.  Each event is for teams of four. There are 6 rounds of questions with 8 questions in each round and team members may confer. After the quiz a céilí or concert is organised for the students.
